When the first marijuana businesses opened in Colorado, Jessica Billingsley co-founded MJ Freeway Business Solutions to fill a fast growing need to track and manage inventory. As Chief Operating Officer, Billingsley and her partner made the timely decision to design a tech firm specifically for the cannabis industry.
MJ Freeway Business Solutions provides a business software platform for point of sale, inventory tracking, manufacturing, cultivation management, and more. MJ Freeway also provides cannabis small-business consulting services and application license support. Since its inception, the women-owned firm has been recognized in numerous major media outlets and was listed in the prestigious INC 5000 in 2015. In addition, Billingsley has been named to Fortune Magazine’s list of Top 10 Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs.
An avid Ashtanga yoga practitioner, Billingsley applies the skills of balance, discipline, and centeredness to her approach as COO. Her deep management skills and strategic vision consistently result in cohesive teams and large profit margins. MJ Freeway’s industry-leading customer service and high revenue returns has earned Billingsley an outstanding reputation in two highly competitive fields – medical marijuana and software development. Billingsley’s respected reputation also won her a board member seat several years running on the National Cannabis Industry Association.
Prior to forming MJ Freeway, Billingsley cut her teeth building and managing technology operations with an emphasis on executive management, corporate culture, finance, and strategic relations. She has been a successful founder, owner, director, COO, and CEO of companies with revenues exceeding eleven million ($11M).
A highly sought-after speaker, Billingsley also finds time to rock climb and raise her young daughter in Denver, Colorado.
Amy and Jessica are both recognized nationally as industry experts and have been frequent guest speakers at many industry events. They have been interviewed and quoted by many local and national media outlets including CNN Money, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, WIRED, CNBC and Forbes. They were both featured in Cannabis Now’s Eight Cannabis Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2014, were included in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Annual List of 100 Brilliant Companies, and were listed in Inc. 5000’s list of fastest growing companies in America.
